Windows 10 Fall Creators Update rebranded Autumn Creators Update for some

The upcoming Redstone 3 release of Windows 10 has been known as the Fall Creators Update for some time now -- but in some parts of the world this name sounds nonsensical. While fall is the season that follows summer in many countries, it's not the case worldwide.

It is for this very reason that the update will bear a different name in a number of countries including the UK, Australia, New Zealand and India. Come September, Windows 10 users in these nations will be installing Windows 10 Autumn Update.

The change was first reported by Windows Central and it can be seen on regional Microsoft pages. Although it makes perfect sense for Microsoft to rebrand the update to better suit individual localities, the change highlights an incredible lack of foresight by the company.

Microsoft has referred to Windows 10 Fall Creators Update for months now -- a name change so late in the game is likely to cause confusion for consumers as they read about two differently named updates.

What are your thoughts? Does Microsoft need to come up with a new method of naming updates -- perhaps something akin to the naming conventions used by Apple?
